Healed with AIP

Hi everyone! I'm a long-time lurker (10+ years) and I NEVER in a million years thought I'd be posting how I healed my case of dry eye. I thought I would suffer for the rest of my life. If I could help even *one* person heal their eyes, that would be so worth it to me. That's why I'm here.
